Over the recent weeks I have seen a few discussions online around the topic of ‘local’ people should be the ones to represent those in the constituency, this led me to thinking how we define the word “local”.
Do I live in Cunninghame North, No. Does that mean I’m not a Ayrshire local lass with a connection to the constituency, absolutely not.
In fact in this contest I’m the only true local Ayrshire candidate, one with Ayrshire in my heart and soul.
So I thought I would share just a few of my Ayrshire FACTS with you all.
